Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Screenplay to be Published

Pottermore has announced this morning that J.K. Rowling’s screenplay for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be published this coming November to tie in with the film’s release. Fans will recall that a similar strategy has been used for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child with the play’s script being released in book form this July.

[…] this year will mark the first time the author has published a screenplay, which you’ll be able to buy as a print edition from Little, Brown (UK) or Scholastic (US and Canada), or as an eBook [on] Pottermore.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them follows the exploits of magizoologist Newt Scamander in 1920s New York, and the screenplay will be published on 19 November – hot on the heels of the movie’s release on 18 November (as if you don’t have that date in your calendar already!)

 

Video: J.K. Rowling Goes Behind the Scenes of Cursed Child

In a new video released by the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Facebook, J.K. Rowling takes fans behind the scenes of the production!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child officially opens at the Palace Theatre London in July 2016, with preview performances from late May 2016. It is one play presented in two Parts, which are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings. Tickets may be purchased on the play’s website.

Dan Fogler & Eddie Redmayne Talk Fantastic Beasts at CinemaCon

UPDATE: The videos have since been removed, probably due to containing major plot points so we have replaced the Dan video with a transcript (thanks to SS)

Dan Fogler and Eddie Redmayne were interviewed at CinemaCon earlier this month and both discussed Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Dan gives a lot more detail about the plot of the film and how his character Jacob and Newt meet/become friends.

I play Jacob, just a regular guy back from [World War I], in Fantastic Beasts.

[J.K. Rowling] writes this story about Newt coming to New York to buy a gift, and he has this case, which is essentially a zoo full of these creatures that he’s collected over the years.

He and I literally bump into each other, our cases get switched up. I open my case, thinking that inside are gonna be pastries, and it’s actually an entire zoo of magical creatures that comes stampeding out. One of them bites me.

Newt, who’s more of a misanthropic character and closer to the animals than he is to humans, he feels responsible for me. He doesn’t want me to die because of this bite, so he takes me along and tries to heal me as we collect all these creatures in the city. Over the course of that, he and I become friends. It’s like Sherlock and Watson, the origin story.

In the video below Eddie and Colin Farrell briefly talk about the film.
